In this clip, at recess, Edith buys some doughnuts and meets briefly with her father, who is passing by. She fetches a drink of water and chats with her friends before returning for science class. The topic is the human skeleton. The students break into their science groups and are encouraged to consider ways to keep your skeleton strong. Edith's group seems to have few ideas regarding the matter. Someone suggests nsima [cornmeal/the staple food of Malawi].
This is part of a 24-hour recording of a day in the life of Edith Kaphuka, a student from Ngwale Village, Zomba District, Malawi. She was 13 years old at the time of the shoot.
Edith Kaphuka was a 13-year-old student at Domasi Mission Primary School in Zomba District, Malawi during her Global Lives Project shoot in 2007. The oldest of four girls, Edith has many responsibilities at her home in Ngwale Village, such as fetching water, cleaning the dishes, and gardening. Her little sister, Memory, is her best friend; when the two are together, they are nearly inseparable. While Edith and her family are Yao, they more readily speak Chichewa, Malawi's national language.
